Cost Guidelines

How much does a Professional Tour Guide Cost?

The services provided by professional tour guides starts well before the actual job requirement. A PTGAA guide will research, plan and prepare for each assignment, plus provide your business with a report with highlights, concerns and recommendations for future improvements after job completion. PTGAA guides are all different, they specialise in and provide a variety of services including: driver guide, special interests or language guide services etc. (Please check the Find a Guide section for your specific needs).

Each guide will have their own set of rates which may differ depending on the guide’s experience, the specific service requirement and a range of other variables.

Indicatively, the recommended minimum call out rate is $150 for up to 4 hrs service, with additional hours charged at a minimum of $35. Additional charges may be incurred for: Public holidays, after hours taxi service, sky bus transfer, domestic and/or international phone calls and in some cases meal allowances where these are not included in full day travel itineraries. Late notice cancellation fees may also apply, both to day and Overlander requirements.

Please note: Based on extensive research and feedback from professional tour guides, the above are the recommended minimum rates, which should be used as an indication only. For a quote for your specific requirements please contact your preferred guide directly. To browse click here: Find a Guide

For any work done to the value of $450 or more within a 30 day period, superannuation (9.5%) may apply as per ATO regulations.
